Nintendo announced Monday that starting May 9, its Wii system will come packaged with Wii Sports Resort as well as the original pack-in disc, Wii Sports. The Wii will also be available in either the original white color scheme or the sexy new black styling that has, until now, been available only outside the Americas.

The system will continue to include a Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, but will also include the enhanced MotionPlus accessory that was included with the stand-alone version of the Wii Sports Resort game disc.

The best part is that the price of the Wii system remains at $199.99 in the United States.

“Nintendo leads the way in delivering rich motion-control gaming experiences at an accessible price point,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime in a press statement. “By including even more of our top-quality hardware and software in the basic Wii system package, we’re extending that commitment to entertainment and value. Now more than ever, consumers can count on Nintendo to deliver inclusive fun and advanced motion controls at a mass-market price.”
